- We can order this
Extensive descriptions of a wide range of key or world-class mineral deposits of China are presented in the context of the country's general geology, tectonic units and mineral systems and their geodynamic evolution within the tectonic framework of the Asian continent. This comprehensive overview, incorporating the latest geological concepts, is the first such coverage written in English by a western expert, and will be of benefit to mineral explorers and miners, as well as to research scientists and students in institutions of higher education. In his compilation of this compendium of Chinese geology and mineral systems, Franco Pirajno draws on first-hand knowledge of China's geology and mineral deposits gained in numerous field visits and research projects with Chinese colleagues from various academic institutions over the past 18 years.First time that a western-based book on China's geology and mineral deposits is published Appropriate for use by the mineral exploration industry Modern English-language geological and mineral deposits information on China Most useful to Western (and Chinese) geoscientists

From the reviews:"The Geology and Tectonic Setting of China's Mineral Deposits is a major accomplishment in that it brings together an extraordinary amount of material that has been published on these deposits in recent years. ... this book is the first English-language summary of China's mineral deposits and should be in all major earth-science libraries; it is a recommended purchase for anyone exploring in China or studying the nation's metallogeny."
